Street Art at its Finest - Mobstr


Street Art is the highest form of collective public communication.  It is not fine art or advertising nor is it for commercial gain.

It may be protest, opinion or just an observation.  It may make us think about the nature of things which is what the street artist Mobstr did in Newcastle in the UK.  There the municipality would paint over graffitti with a buff colored paint.

So he would return and write cheeky questions to the 'Buff Man' which, of course, would be 'buffed over'.

This piece is called, "Playing with Buff Man".  He thanks the city council of Newcastle for their obedient collaboration.
